"Whats with this heat?"

It reminds me why I did not want to retire down South. Could you imagine doing this all summer long?

I spoke with my father in Arizona last night, 118 degrees. Wow that is hot!

3:30 and its 87. was in the town office and the lady in front of me in line asks the clerk why they dont have air conditioning. she answered 'who would ever thought we would have needed one in cutler, especially in september'
Air conditioning, at 87 degrees? Have you ever lived South or in the Midwest? That's a comfortable summer day there! Come on, Mainers, you can take it!

I'm really hoping this was summer's last gasp. Looks like Earl is going to bring us some cooler temperatures at least.

I'd love to have weather in the 80s. *sigh* We've been well over 100 this year in middle TN, and it was for weeks at a time with no break. Night temps were in the upper 80s. I'll trade ya?

I never understood that. So is an oven. Doesn't mean it's not hot! LOL

Arizona people are weird, trying to convince us that 120 degrees isn't hot. Like Californians trying to convince us the Earth ripping wide open isn't a big deal.

I, for one, am enjoying the heck out of this. Sure, I was sweating at work today, but all I have to do is think about the winter before last when it was -25 outside here, and I was inside with both woodstoves going and it was still so cold that I was wearing thermals, insulated jeans, sweaters and a down coat, and pipes were bursting in the walls...and I smile.

I'll take this for as long as it lasts. Winter will be here soon enough.
